we'll look back at the life of andy griffith. good to have you with us. thanks for watching. millions of americans are going to be traveling over the next few days and we're going to by wi buying a lot of gas. republicans wanted to celebrate the fourth of july by hammering president obama over rising gas prices. it isn't working out the way they hoped. today, the national average for a gallon of gasoline is $3.33. it's the lowest price per gallon since last december. over the last three months, gas prices have fallen from a national high of $3.92 back in april. in some southern states in this country, the average cost is already below $3 a gallon. all of a sudden, what's that noise? i can't hear it. it's because the republicans are all of a sudden quiet about energy policy. you see, they were making all kinds of noise about high gas prices back in the spring. leaders of congress, the presidential candidates, and the right-wing media all over this president, saying he's the problem. putting the blame on president obama. >> since this president has been president, the cost of
, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in chicago and was associated and worked with rod blagojevich to get valerie jaret appointed to the senate. there will be counter attacks. now we understand why romney attack dog john sununu went on fox news and called obama a pot head from hawaii. >> he has no idea how the american system functions. wetient be surprised about that because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in indonesia. >> drug use, allegations, and tony resco, all that stuff, they're not the only old tricks pulls from the hat. joe arpaio was putting birtherism back in the news cycle. >> we believe that the certificate presented to the american public by the white house is a forgery. >> well, sheriff joe isn't part of the romney campaign, but that didn't stop romney surrogate donald trump from tweeting today. as i always said, the birthers were after the truth. thanks to sheriff joe. they're banking that they're not going to believe or know who the president of the united states is and they have some
's policy has been to drive up the cost of energy so americans would use less of it. >> president obama was even asked about this conspiracy during a live news conference in march. >> critics will say on capitol hill that you want gas prices to go higher because you have said before that will wean the american people off fossil fuels onto renewable fuels. how do you respond. >> just from a political perspective, do you think the president of the united states going into election wants gas prices to go up higher? is there anyone here who thinks that makes sense? >> no sense at all, but right wingers still repeated it as long as gas prices were high. if the gas bags paid any attention at all to the actual economic reports, they would have known how far off base they were. in the beginning of may, economists were reporting gas prices had peaked at $128 a barrel. the trend was already moving in the other direction, but of course, republicans continued to blame the president for having sinister motivations. remember, the keystone pipeline, son of a gun, we can't get low prices unless we have
's get rid of all guns in america. i grew up in a very rural part of america where people use guns for hunting and that sort of j right to bear arms, people have a right to not bear arms and also feel safe. that's the question we must ask ourselves, how do we balance those two rights. >> i got someone on my twitter feed today who says he's never agreed with me on anything and he came to an agreement with me after a few exchanges about more regulation and control of ammunition sales, which is where i'd like to see some focus of the future conversation on this. charles, thank you very much for joining me tonight. that will have to be "the last word." "the ed show" is up next. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson in for ed schultz. today, we got our first look at an alleged killer. but we're still looking for politicians who will step up to cut down the violence. this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >> we haven't had the head of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms because the president can't get anybody through congress. w
>> you're going to need a bigger boat >> he good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. president obama has put the issue of tax fairness front and center in this election. speaking in the east room of the white house, the president asked congress to immediately extend the bush tax cuts for those making less than $250,000 a year. >> the republicans say they don't want to raise taxes on the middle class, i don't want to to raise taxes on the middle class. so we should all agree to extend the tax cuts for the middle class. let's agree to do what we agree on. right? >> now, i'm going to show you some numbers in a few moments. you can be the judge. this really puts the republicans on the spot. they have to take a position on supporting middle class tax cuts without an equal tax cuts for the wealthiest of americans. now the romney campaign believes the best way to deal with the announcement is to say the president is raising taxes. president obama's response to even more bad economic news is a massive tax increase. here's the problem with the romney camp's statement. it is b

all sides. we're nonpartisan. for us, it's about the agenda. what you plan on doing for our communities. in this case, the problem, and the reason the booing happens in the first place, quite frankly, wasn't because he kritdicized the affordable care act. it's because of his characterization of it using barack obama's name along those lines, seemed very disrespectful. soez those kind of things were very problematic. sure, we disagree with him, and no we don't think they're in the best interest of the naacp or the communities we serve. as a matter of fact, what we did with this particular convention is set our policy, and as the press release said, these policies are in opposition in many cases with the policy positions of the naacp. >> mayor nutter, your city is 44% african-american. 18% of registered african-american voters in philadelphia, they lack a voter id. does mitt romney need to answer for these voter id laws? >> well, if he's running for president of the united states, he should certainly have something to say about it. if he cares about the american right to vote
that work out? >> frankly, i made a mistake. i shouldn't have used those words. and i apologize for using those words, but i don't apologize for the idea that this president has demonstrated that he does not understand how jobs are created in america. >> john sununu and the romney campaign just couldn't gain any traction with their new attacks, because there's only one thing dominating the campaign trail right now. it's all about romney's taxes. a new poll suggests americans, they want to know what is in mitt romney's taxes. 56% of voters said romney should release the last 12 years of returns. 61% of independents want to see the last 12 years. and it doesn't stop with voters. tea party icon ron paul told politico, "in the scheme of things, politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want." texas governor and alleged romney supporter rick perry had this to say. >> no matter who you are or what office you're running for, you should be as transparent as you can be with your tax returns and other aspects of your life. >> and the editors of the conservative "

"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >> good evening americans. wemcome to "the ed show" from new york. the blue birds were out for mitt romney during a speech to the naacp. tonight, i'll show you why he got off easy. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> this was perhaps one of the most negative reactions mitt romney has had in the course of his 2012 presidential campaign. >> mitt romney gets booed mercilously for his vision for america. >> i think we expected that, of course. >> tonight, hillary shenten of the naacp, and philadelphia mayor michael nutter on what happens when mitt romney tells the truth. >>> repeal and disgrace. house republicans vote to take health care away from americans. house democratic whip steny hoyer is here with reaction. >> and today, the congressional budget office debunks one of the greatest republican lies ever told. >> unless the president gets off of his absolute obsession with raising taxes -- >> underbarack obama, he has one plan and one plan only. that's to raise ever
the taxes like crazy. we need freedom. >> good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. mitt romney spoke to the naacp convention in houston, texas today. he delivered a speech short on specifics and long on tepid generalities. >> some may wonder why a republican would campaign in the african-american community and address the naacp. i hope to address every american of every race, creed, and sexual orientation. from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between. >> romney was greeted with polite applause throughout the speech, and even got some encouraging organ music. >> i can't promise you that i'll agree on every issue, but i do promise that your hospitality to me today will be returned. we will know one another. and we will work to common purpose. >> the audience gave romney their attention and a fair hearing. at the end of the speech, the crowd respectfully offered a standing ovation to the candidate. the attendees gave him some credit for showing up. unlike the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was on
